AceShowbiz – Actress Liu Yifei‘s grandmother lives in Wuhan, China – where the coronavirus pandemic began.
The actress stars in the leading role in the upcoming Disney movie “Mulan” and, while she’s been hard at work promoting the movie, her grandmother has remained in Wuhan under lockdown as authorities attempt to contain the virus.
The 32-year-old actress, who was born in the city, confirmed the news in a chat with Variety on the red carpet at the premiere of her new film, insisting, “She’s doing good.”
Mulan was due to hit theatres on March 27. However, due to the global outbreak of coronavirus, which has seen more than 134,000 cases registered worldwide, and over 4,900 deaths, the release has been bumped.
Disney chiefs have yet to announce a new release date.
Mulan joins blockbusters including the new James Bond film, “No Time to Die“, “A Quiet Place: Part II“, and the latest “Fast and Furious” film among the projects that have been wiped from the March and April release calendar.
